I thought some might enjoy the comment I left on the site:
The need for community is real, but it doesnt necessarily mean banding together to promote atheism in the same way that believers promote their faiths. I find my community support online through the atheist forum on Topix. Since its free and open to anyone, believers are present as well, but the interchanges between the nonbelievers are actually enhanced by that in a weird way. I also enjoy the company of others who like to write and, for the most part, do it well.
Local atheist meetings seem more haphazard. I only get to talk with one or two people, and theres alway s a little pressure to move towards the kind of group action that repelled me when I was trying to live as a believer. Not everyone can give up churchiness along with faith.
